Why is my daughter drifting from God? Why can’t I explain my life choices to my parents? When will my son get a real job? Within the last several decades, the world has shifted dramatically. The cracks of this fundamental shift appear everywhere: in our economy, in our cultural debates, in our political landscape, and, most important, in our churches. The problem is we tend to overreact to these changes, fearing that Christianity is dying. We need better Generational IQ, so we can respond to the changes but not be terrified by them. We need a wise generational coach. Haydn Shaw is that generational expert, showing us the roots of this generational shift and how it affects every one of us. Each generation, whether it’s the aging Boomers or the young Millennials, approaches God with a different set of questions and needs based on the times in which they grew up. Haydn walks you through these generational differences and paints a vision of hope for the future.

This collection bundles 2 of popular author Haydn Shaw’s books together in one e-book, for a great value! Sticking Points This is the first time in American history that we have had four different generations working side-by-side in the workplace: the Traditionalists (born before 1945), the Baby Boomers (born 1945-1964), Gen X (born 1965-1980), and the Millennials (born 1981-2001). Haydn Shaw, popular business speaker and generational expert, has identified 12 places where the 4 generations typically come apart in the workplace (and in life as well). These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward managing one’s own time, texting, social media, organizational structure, and of course, clothing preferences. If we don’t learn to work together and stick together around these 12 sticking points, then we’ll be wasting a lot of time fighting each other instead of enjoying a friendly and productive team. Sticking Points is a must-read book that will help you understand the generational differences you encounter while teaching how we can learn to speak one another’s language and get better results together.

Some people are cleverer than others. This everyday observation is the subject of an academic field that is often portrayed as confused and controversial, when in fact, the field of intelligence holds some of psychology's best-replicated findings. This Very Short Introduction describes what psychologists have discovered about how and why people differ in their thinking powers. Drawing on large scale data Ian Deary considers how many types of intelligence there are, and how intelligence changes with age. Along the way he tackles some of the most burning questions surrounding intelligence, such as whether larger brains are cleverer, and how genes and environments contribute to people's intelligence differences. He also considers the new field of cognitive epidemiology, which draws links between intelligence and better health, less illness, and longer life, and asks whether intelligence is increasing. In this new edition Deary also addresses the controversial question of whether men and women differ in intelligence. Throughout he provides a clear description of the data we can use to answer these questions and more. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Who is showing us the way? In ancient Palestine, when Jesus Christ asked people who they thought he was, one of their top guesses was the Old Testament prophet, Jeremiah. "Who do people say that I am?" "Some say Jeremiah or one of the prophets." There was something about Jesus that reminded people of Jeremiah. In our moment in history, when we desperately need leaders and role models to show us a better way, Jeremiah stands as a human cornerstone, a blueprint for dynamic living in the middle of desperate times. With compassion and biblical insight, author Chris Jackson shows us how ancient wisdom from Jeremiah's life can lead us into towering, dynamic living today.

Since the First Edition of this book appeared, professors have praised its visual presentation of concepts, accessible writing style, and solid research-based scholarship. PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS is about the ideas and concepts behind the research studies. His straightforward style gets students to contemplate open-ended questions, examine their assumptions, and apply psychological concepts to their own lives. Wayne Weiten surveys psychology's broad range of content with three aims: to illuminate the process of research and its intrinsic relationship to application; to show both the unity and diversity of the subject, and to invite students to the study of psychology by respecting their ability to master its fundamental concepts. Integrative themes--including empiricism, theoretical diversity, sociohistorical contexts, multifactorial causation, cultural heritage, heredity and environment, and subjectivity of experience--are woven throughout the text to provide connections among the different areas of research in psychology. The book's dynamic, teaching-oriented illustration program further enhances these themes. Weiten reinforces concepts through exercises that appear at the end of every chapter. At the same time, the author presents topics in a hierarchical manner, giving students handles they can use to prioritize concepts within the chapter.

A proven classic in the field, Psychological Testing and Assessment has been completely updated, offering extensive coverage of new tests, inventories, and scales, and the methods used in constructing, administering, scoring, and interpreting these psychometric instruments. Revisions in the content and format of college entrance examinations, new editions of various tests, and renewed interest in the "politics of intelligence testing" drive Aiken's eleventh edition. Greater attention has also been given to adaptive testing, item response theory, the use of computers in psychological testing, neuropsychological and developmental testing, and applications of tests in various contexts. This is an essential text for any student who is planning to construct, administer, and make decisions based on test scores in clinical or educational settings.

Peterson analyzes the state of today's adult education, pinpoints weaknesses and offers guidelines to understand the educational needs, wants and characteristics of older learners in various settings -- community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, businesses, public libraries, social centers and churches. He investigates the physical, perceptual and attitudinal changes that older learners experience and suggests ways to tailor the learning atmosphere in light of special considerations. Using actual models, he illustrates how to design and implement a variety of programs -- retraining, second-career preparation, preretirement education and planning for use of leisure, diploma and degree completion, recreation and coping with change.
